Odisha Generation Phase-I Project (OGPTL)

The state of Odisha has emerged as one of the key centers for power generation in India. Sterlite Power will develop transmission systems to help power projects in the state cater to the demand centers in the country. The project is a part of Common Transmission System for Phase-II Generation Projects and Immediate Evacuation System for OPGC Project in Odisha. The transmission lines will be part of the interstate transmission network providing additional evacuation of up to 5,000 MW of electricity from Odisha-based plants that are seeking better access to power-consuming centers. Sterlite Power will Build, Own, Operate & Maintain two lines that will connect Odisha and Chhattisgarh.

Sterlite Power

Project Story

In Orissa, our transmission line overlapped with the existing lines for an Industrial Urban Corridor which supplied power directly to vital industries in the region. The functioning of industries is contingent on a reliable power supply which is guaranteed via service level agreements, and this could not be affected at any cost. In some sections of the transmission line, severe ROW issues were also causes for concern. In areas where the line passed through tribal regions, we also encountered resistance from the communities.

To overcome the challenges posed by our line overlapping the Industrial Urban Corridor, work was planned and carried out with extreme sensitivity to ensure minimum outages. To overcome ROW issues, our teams liaised simultaneously with various entities in the planning phase. We also worked together with the tribal communities to educate them on the benefits of the transmission line, and law enforcement where needed to ensure completion of the project.

This project will be part of the interstate transmission network providing additional evacuation of up to 5,000 MW of electricity from Odisha-based plants that are seeking better access to the power-consuming centers around the country.
